Battalion Chief 
Robert J. Mekel
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Battalion Chief Robert J. Mekel joined the Hilltown Township Volunteer Fire Company in December of 1998 as a Junior Firefighter.   As a Junior Firefighter, he quickly learned the equipment assigned to each apparatus (Engine and Rescue 60) as well as firefighting techniques and tactics.   He became tactically proficient with the duties and responsibilities of a Junior Firefighter.   "I wanted to make a difference in peoples lives" states BC Mekel.     He was the first of his family to become involved in the fire service and has enjoyed serving at various operational and administrative levels in the fire company.    Upon meeting the age requirement to attend the Bucks Country Basic FIre Academy training (required to become an interior fire fighter) BC Mekel faced some significant challenges in his quest to be a fully accredited firefighter.   He states: "My biggest challenge was my learning disability.  Passing tests are hard for me but with help I overcame that challenge"  
 
BC Mekel 's tag line is:  Lead by Example (If you want something done, step up and do it so that others can learn from you)
 
BC Mekel's assignments with the Fire Company include:
 
  • Junior Firefighter
  • Firefighter
  • Assistant Engineer
  • Captain
  • Battalion Chief
